Report from the first Peace Procession

Over 30 people gathered on a rainy Sunday to walk for peace from Westminster Cathedral (top picture) to the Edith Cavell Statue, just north of Trafalgar Square (bottom picture).  Edith Cavell was a nurse and humanitarian, who was executed by firing squad in Germany on 12th October 1915 for helping soldiers of both sides to escape the squalor of World War One.

The campaigners, from all faiths and none, were joined by Brian Haw and David Gould, whose step-daughter Helen Katherine Jones was killed on a Piccadilly line train at Kings Cross during the bombing of the London underground in 2005. They stopped on the way at Downing Street where a petition demanding a peace plan was handed into Gordon Brown and at St Martin’s in the Fields in Trafalgar Square (middle picture). See the Indymedia report for some great photos of the event by Terry.
